THE BIG I: Buckeye Bullet Sets World Land Speed Record

The folks over at THE Ohio State University have set the land speed world record for an electric car.  Last month, the Buckeye Bullet 2 went 307 miles per hour.  Today, we have Giorgio Rizzoni from OSU on the show.  We are working with OSU to get video of the race.  I'll post it ASAP.

    Your piece on EVs (Electric cars) is misleading. The picture of a wind turbine with a car plugged in is dreamworld. There is not enough non-fossil fuel supply to keep the lights on, much less run a country wide fleet of EVs. So, we'll continue to blow apart my beautiful Appalachian mountains to furnish electrons to run EVs? I don't think so... I certainly hope not. At the point where we can produce all the electricity we need without coal THEN I will be a believer in EVs. I hope the proponents of EVs will take a realistic 360 degree view of all that is needed to keep these things running.
